The maritime industry is a fast growing and dynamic field with many opportunities that are crucial to the transportation industry and world economy; people turn to the oceans for resources such as food, transportation and energy. These Seafarers must be creative and visionary to see the potential to use transportation and the oceans effectively. In order to complete the tasks associated with these roles, of operating, supplying, repairing and/or maintaining vessels, managing and/or operating shipping lines, shipping and freight forwarding services and similar enterprises. This emerging industry also includes a significant component of traditional oil and gas and renewable energy (particularly wind, but also marine turbines). Within in the maritime industry some of these occupations require the seafarer to see colors correctly. A seafarer with a color vision deficiency may not be able to effectively do his or her job correctly.

If they have a color vision deficiency, this important part of their job could be impossible to do. There are also a multitude of symbols, signs, markers, maps and other signals that maritime officers must be able to quickly identify and evaluate, which requires them to accurately see colors.
